On Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the House Judiciary Committee, and he dropped one doozy of a bombshell the media’s largely ignoring.
Wray was grilled by a variety of representatives over numerous issues, the most important of which was the FBI’s seemingly deliberate mishandling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit email server. Rep. Darrel Issa grilled Wray over whether or not “improper political considerations” played a role into the outcome of the investigation, and his answer should have everyone on Team Hillary panicking.

“I think of the Inspector General’s investigation as de novo in one sense, in which that it’s objective, arms length, no skin in the game, if you will,” explained Wray. “But you’re right, the Inspector General is not second guessing prosecutorial decisions and things like that.”
“However, the Inspector General is looking at the very important question of whether or not improper political considerations factored into the decision making,” he continued. “If he were to conclude that’s what happened, then I think at that point were we’re in a situation were we have to assess what else might need to be done to unring that bell.”
While that may sound like a rather soft answer to Issa’s question, what Wray appeared to be saying was that if the Inspector General, a non-partisan, outside investigative agency that provides oversight to the FBI, finds that Comey and his minions let Hillary off the hook because of their politics and not the facts, Hillary and the lot will end up going down.
As for the likelihood of this happening? Well, let’s consider the facts.
We now know that FBI Agent Peter Strzok was fired from Mueller’s special counsel in August over his extreme anti-Trump views. The same Peter Strzok was the man responsible for heading the investigation into Hillary’s server; the same agent who opened the probe into alleged collusion between President Trump’s campaign and the Russians; the same agent who questioned former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and the same agent who changed the language in former Director Comey’s statement exonerating Hillary of any crimes, claiming she was “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.”
That differentiation was the difference between Hillary being charged with a crime and walking, and it’s that differentiation, if the Inspector General conducts a fair investigation, that should lead to the case being reopened by Wray.
So while many may believe this is just more noise and nothing will ever come of this, we also have to take Director Wray at his word until he gives us reason not to. so far, his word is that if there’s evidence to support doing so, he’ll reopen the probe into Hillary’s actions, and from everything we know, there’s a mountain of evidence to do exactly that.
